Does anyone remember Pete`s match against Ivan Lendl in the quarterfinals of U.S. Open in 1990? Have you ever watched this match?
I think that it was fantastic "battle", Pete defeated Lendl
6-4,7-6(7-4),3-6,4-6,6-2 and served 24 aces. It was the first step to win this tournament a couple of days later :)

Sampras vs John McEnroe (U.S. Open 1990 semifinal) ;)

McEnroe (like Lendl) is also very frustrated :banghead:
He didn`t understand that Pete was invincible in this tournament :worship:

Sampras vs Agassi (U.S. Open 1990 final) ;)

Agassi isn`t frustrated, but he is very sad. He knows that he doesn`t have any chance against Pete ;)

More photos from this historical final I will give you soon ;)

Of course I`m interested of buying any Pete`s matches in 1990 U.S. Open. Do you have those matches (against Lendl, McEnroe or Agassi)?

I would like to have a big collection of Pete`s matches, but I have got only eight. So I`m asking again. Do you have any matches of him on DVD or VHS?

Yes, Lendl won 94 singles titles and 8 Grand Slam, he reached eight U.S. Open final (1982-1989), but Pete broke his succession in 1990 :cool:

I would like to see this WONDERFUL match. Unfortunately sport channels don`t want to repeat this battle. Why? :confused:
